"Omar Karim is a creative anomaly - part entrepreneur, part designer, part technologist, part copywriter - he's basically incredibly difficult to define.
Before entering the world of marketing, Omar ran a street art gallery and experimental pirate radio station, going on to launch a digital magazine called Bones, documenting creative culture around the world. His unique take on the world led to a job at Fallon where he worked on Sony, BBC, Orange and Cadbury's across the briefs no-one knew what to do with.
Whilst at Fallon Omar released his first record in Australia, going on to make music videos for Wiley and MJ Cole which won acclaim from The Sun.
Since then Omar has traveled the world and worked with a range of agencies including 101, Work Club, R/GA, and Anomaly. As a freelance senior creative specializing in copywriting, content and idea generation for clients like Ballentines, Diageo, Google, Nestle & Nike.
